Unit 1: Examining the CCSS for Reading Literature and Informational Text

1.1.1 CCR Anchor Standards

Time to Read

As the video in Time2View mentions, for each of the CCSS for ELA/Literacy strands, there are corresponding CCR Anchor Standards that are identical across all grades and content areas, lending coherence and structure. You will now have an opportunity to see the connections among the anchor standards, grade-level standards, and literacy in the content-area standards.

Examine the College and Career Readiness Anchor Standards Matrix below. Read the ten CCR Anchor Standards for Reading. They represent the expectations for students who are college and career ready. As you review them, consider how these will help students be better prepared for reading demands after high school.
